On his way to Constantinople for a Synaxis of Hierarchs of the Ecumenical Throne, His Eminence Metropolitan Methodios visited the Holy Metropolis of Neapolis and Stavroupolis of Thessaloniki at the invitation of His Eminence Metropolitan Barnabas of Neapolis and Stavroupolis. Joined by the recently ordained Metropolitan of France, His Eminence Metropolitan Demetrios, the hierarchs celebrated feast day services commemorating the Beheading of Holy Prophet and Forerunner John the Baptist, the patron saint of the metropolis's cathedral. For decades, Their Eminences Metropolitan Methodios and Metropolitan Barnabas have worked closely together, most recently, through the "Kosmos Project" exchange program which is offered to campers and camp staff of both metropolises' camping ministries.
